The book thief
Noughts and Crosses
The perks of being a wallflower (fave)

Moved to Books, literature and comics.

Hmm, our tastes in books seem very different, but I can still try to recommend some books I liked.

My book recommendations are:
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
- Candide by Voltaire
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
- Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Based on your list I'd recommend The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas and Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard.

Ahh The Book Thief is one of my favourites.

Have you read the Time Traveller's Wife before? Another one of my favourites, it's one of those books that don't have a straightforward chronology so it always keeps you on your toes.

I absolutely love The Book Thief. Here are some I think you will like:

>> Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows - Balli Kaur Jaswal
(please do not judge this book by it's title! It's a bit spicy, but the story develops well and has a good mix of humour, suspense. Also, the protagonist has links to law - I can't say much more or I'll spoil it)
>> Becoming - Michelle Obama
(she was a lawyer and reflects a lot on her days as one)
>> The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
(A real eye-opener; no direct links to law but here is a quote from the book to intrigue you:
"Only that once again they broke the Love Laws.
That Lay down who should be loved. And how. And how much.")
>> The Fraud - Barbara Ewing
(Again, no direct links to law as far as I remember, but a good read nevertheless)

I would recommend the podcast "Backlisted" to you. (there is also a Backlisted website in case you are interested).

On Backlisted, you have two guy who are experienced in the publishing industry, who invite on a guest star (usually a writer) every episode. As well as talking about what they have recently been reading, they discuss a 'lost' or 'neglected' book. It is a great resource for reading recommendations, and they give a lot of love to books nobody else will recommend to you. I hope you enjoy it - I'm completely addicted.
